Colwick’s purpose built WEEE recycling centre is built to handle the safe and effective recycling of a full range of waste household and domestic kitchen and electrical appliances, including
Fridges and freezers
Washing machines and tumble dryers
Ovens, cookers and microwaves
CRT and Flatscreen televisions
Home entertainment units
PCs, latops, printers and other IT equipment
Small electrical appliances – heaters, hairdryers, etc.
We can, by arrangement, take delivery of any quantity of household WEEE at our recycling centre – alternatively we can also arrange regular collections of any quantity of WEEE from businesses, public bodies, hospitals, schools and universities. We are unable to collect individual items from private households.
Every item of WEEE that we process is provided with a Waste Transfer Note – confirming that it has been transported and disposed of in an environmentally friendly and fully WEEE-compliant way.
On arrival at Colwick’s recycling centre, every piece of WEEE is logged and processed in accordance with the WEEE regulations – dangerous chemicals and materials are removed for safe disposal, useful materials such as metals, glass and plastics are recovered and processed so that they can be used again in the manufacturing of brand new products.
